Hello lovelies. My name is Rashelle. I’m a wife, business owner, blogger and mother to my 2.5-year-old prince, Preston and my 4 week old princess, Kensington. I never knew I could love someone so much, that I’ve never met before, until I first set eyes on my babies. I was instantly head over heels in love with them. From the moment you hold your child for the first time, the bond and desire to nurture and protect is hard to ignore from that point moving forward.
I love thinking back to when I became a first time mom. I was over the moon excited yet nervous and scared at the same time. After we brought Preston home from the hospital, I remember spending hours just lying next to him in bed, staring at that beautiful face of his and listening to him breathe. Any mom can relate to the feeling of worry after you bring your new baby home. You hover, place your hand on their chest multiple times and at night listen for the sounds of them breathing. Any squeak, snort, sneeze, cough or worse, no noise, I would fly over to his bassinet and watch for his tummy to move up and down. I remember spending sleepless nights for months sitting up in my bed just watching him breathe. The thought of eventually putting him in his own room in a crib and walking away gave me the worst anxiety.
I recently welcomed my beautiful baby girl Kensington to the world. This time around I thought I would be a little more relaxed seeing that it is my second child, but the truth is that same anxiety came back. The mama bear instinct to protect your babies and keep them safe is intense and goes into full effect whether it’s your first or second child.
Standard baby monitors allow you to monitor noise and view your child in real time. That way if they are upset or crying, you’ll know. What they cannot do is notify you to a potential emergency. Enter, Owlet’s Smart Sock. The Owlet Smart Sock is a game changer and is designed to notify you if your baby’s oxygen level falls out of range. The wireless foot sock comes in 3 different sizes to grow with your bundle of joy. It fits snug on your baby’s foot and through the use of pulse oximetry, it measures your little one’s oxygen levels and heart rate while they sleep. Pulse oximetry has been around for decades and is used at doctor’s offices and hospitals around the world. The Owlet Smart Sock is easy to use, you can check levels on your smart phone, there are no wires that could potentially harm baby and most importantly gives mom and dad a peace of mind. I absolutely love this product, think it is a must-have and will be recommending it to all my mama friends.

There’s a lot to be learned in this whole parenting gig. You’re never truly a pro but there is the title of veteran that gets passed around from time to time. After the birth of my second in September, I thought for sure I was eligible to be called a veteran mother. My eldest, Remy,…
